"New" for the table

Hello crafters...
My last post for this year.
Last month I had made a layout for my husband "Good Times" to celebrate his promotion. It was also to do up his new cabin which he shifted to rescently.

Keeping the same theme in mind, which also happens to be my fav colors for "men"...Red, Black and Khaki,I made this easel card with post it and the yearly calendar.

I don't know about other men, but my dear husband will easily forget the gifts he gets,if he doesn't get to use them on a daily basis!
I thought this calendar cum post it holder will make him glance at my efforts on his table atleast once a day! What say...
I love vintage theme too...so went ahead and used the Tim Holtz stamps and the weather clock for the focal point. The Wishes & Dreams quotes were just perfect to go with the Tim Holtz sentiment...all of them very motivating and inspiring to see everyday on your work station.
Added a few button as embellies for the "sewing man" !!!

When I alter or work on any 3Dproject, I hate to ignore the back side of it! I thought why not the person siting on the other side of the table too have some visual delight....so here's the back of the card!
Hope you can see the coconut shell button!

Surprisingly, a lot of thought process went intomaking this masculine card, but I enjoyed every bit of it and would love to see it on his table and more importantly to get a feed back from his collegues !!! Do you think they will even notice these things at work and even appreciate...I need to wait on that !!

But, you guys please let me know what you think of this project.
Wishing all of you a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  4. Beautifully done, Rupa! I am partial to the same colors when I am working on male cards! I think your plaid designer paper adds additional interest to the design! Very nicely done. Thanks for dropping this into our mailbox here at 613 Avenue Create!
